cheap material, sold at higher price

I returned this product before using it
True to size

PI must be cutting costs as this is the same lining/chamois as the cheaper models. No 3D padding - will be returning ASAP.

Extremely Poor Quality

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size

These are awful shorts. I have been purchasing Pearl Izumi for years and this is the first set of shorts I have been extremely disappointed with. These shorts are very low quality and I am amazed at the price point they sell for. These shorts share the same stitching and chamois as their $50 model. I have no idea what difference these shorts have opposed to those to have such a spike in price. After my 2.5 hour ride today I have a serious rash that matches the pattern and shape of the stitching in areas these shorts should be preventing a rash. Do not waste your money.

Had the same issue due to the stitching on three rides. Returned them for credit. On the other hand, no issues wearing their Escape Quest shorts.

As I continue to work my way through what seems like endless options of shorts, bibs and tights the Attack short is getting close to what my body is looking for. Fit is good and true to size. Chamois is respectable - at least so far on the 20 to 30 mile rides I’ve worn these for. Only miscue is, IMO, is there’s no waist cinch cord. Relying on the constructed waist necessitates careful size selection.
